Tossing spheres at vocabulary-strapped monsters sounds like madness, but Blizzard certainly must enjoy Pokémon's idea, with its
pet battles minigame
stepping through the Mists of Pandaria in World of Warcraft. If you don't already have
a certain song
stuck in your head, then the player-crafted
dispenses with all subtlety and turns your critter conflicts into full-blown Pokémon rumbles.
When entering a battle after installing, WOWkemon launches a short tutorial by Professor Birch describing the Pokémon-ified battle screens and ability menus. Sounds, screen effects, and even the font closely resemble the style of the handheld game family. Sadly, it lacks the occasional bout of
for true authenticity.
